5 Keto-Friendly Vitamin-Rich Fruits

Keto Vitamin Rich Fruits

When most people think of dieting, they think of filling their bodies with plentiful amounts of leafy greens, fruits, and lean meats. The Ketogenic Diet is a little different. Although it does encourage you to consume those leafy greens and juicy meats, it is highly focused on limiting the carbohydrate content of everything you eat. Fruit, as delicious and nutritious as it is, contains high amounts of sugar. Sugar equals carbohydrates 🙁. That being said, there are some yummy Keto-friendly fruits that are lower in carbs than others and we are here to tell you about them.

Here are our Top 5 Favorite Vitamin-Enriched Fruits for Keto Dieters:

Raspberries

Raspberries      

Craving something sweet? 1/2 cup of Raspberries contains 3.5g of carbs. Top them with a heavy whipping cream (dairy or coconut) for an after dinner treat or keep them in the freezer and grab a few for a quick mid-day pick me up. Not only is this fruit delicious, it also contains powerful antioxidants and is said to aid in the prevention of many diseases such as Diabetes, Coronary Heart Disease, Hypertension, Cancer, and more.

Vitamins

  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin K
  • Vitamin E
  • Vitamin B6, B7

 

Blackberries

Blackberries

Another berry makes the list of Keto-Friendly fruits, with Blackberries at 4g of carbs per 1/2 cup. Throw some blackberries into a protein-packed smoothie to complement the flavor of your delicious #fearlessketo supplements or pop a few in your mouth to help curb those sugary dessert cravings. Blackberries are high in fiber and will help improve your gut health if you’re facing the infamous “Keto Constipation”. Blackberries are also said to help prevent gum disease and cavities in addition to boosting brain health with their anti-inflammatory properties.

  • Vitamin C (large amounts)
  • Vitamin K

Strawberries

Strawberries

Well, it seems we have a trend going on here! Another fruit from the berry family makes the list.  Berries are lower in carbohydrates than most fruits out there, thus making them a Keto-dieters go-to. Strawberries, for example, have 6g of carbs per 1/2 cup. Strawberries alone or sprinkled with a sugar substitute make for a delicious dessert and can easily satisfy any sweet cravings. Since they are packed with nutrients and fiber, they are also quite filling! These potent goodies are said to lower your blood pressure, improve your cholesterol, protect your heart, and even prevent cancer.

Avocado

Avocados

The popularity of this super fruit has soared over the last 5 years, and for a good reason! Avocados are high in healthy fats and rich in vitamins and minerals. Not to mention, they are one of the healthiest low-carb fruits around (2g net carbs per 100g), making them a staple in many Ketogenic Diets. Their creamy texture mixes well in many Keto dessert recipes, but also adds delicious flavors to savory breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. Overall, Avocados taste good in just about anything and are a perfect snack on their own with a dash of salt or hot sauce. Studies have also shown that eating avocados can reduce your risk of heart disease, cataracts, hypertension, and cancer.

Vitamins

  • Vitamin K
  • Vitamin B2, B3, B5
  • Vitamin E
  • Vitamin C

 

Coconut

Coconut

One bite of this decadent fruit transports your taste buds to the tropical island of your dreams. Besides being the creamy flavor of a Piña Colada, coconuts are the miracle fruit of our Keto dreams. They provide us with highly nutritious and fibrous meat, as well as water filled with electrolytes. Pure Pressed Coconut oil is a main component of healthy cooking and beauty regimes all over the world. In addition to being rich in healthy fats and vitamins, coconuts are also low in carbohydrates (2.5g net carbs per 1/2 cup shredded) and the meat provides for a delicious and low-sugar snack. Coconut is one of the most popular sources for MCT Oil, a supplement used to increase energy and help in weight management (and in my opinion, an essential part of any keto diet). Fatty Acids in coconut oil have also been said to reduce seizures, raise good HDL Cholesterol, boost brain function, burn fat, and protect your hair and skin.

  • Vitamin E
  • Vitamin B1, B3, B5, B6
